created and performed by Bianca Manuel

Performed and presented in June 2015 in Curitiba, BR. This performance, installation, happening aimed to merge reality and ficction. 

It was questioning the brazilian sexual cultural and how that impacted women's bodies: the need to be thin, have 'Brazilians bikinis', the accepted number of mates 

 Therefore, the needles were placed in the naked venter. Exposing the vulnerability of the naked skin and genitalia.

One by one the needles pierce the performers' skin and after a while, they start to form a vestment. All of the sudden my body is marked and vested by

real and fictive, some abusive, some not, some rape, some consensual, love, affective and sexual relations.
